Keesmaatistan traffic plan on left, transit plan on the right

    Unjustifiable hyperbole asside, I like Kessmaat’s idea to solve the Scarborough Subway vs LRT issue by letting the province pay for the whole cost of a subway, as Ford is bound and determined to have it built, freeing up a big chunk of change for LRT projects.

  2. Dork in East York says:

    Like a lot of her platform, some it makes sense (residential streets at 30 km/hr), while others, like bloating the transportation budget, seems excessive and irresponsible.

    Well Smart Track hasn’t exaclty lit the city on fire with inspiration. Outside of transit wonk circles no-one even knows what it is. Hell even I’m not too sure still. Tory is a gentleman, an honourable guy. But just because he’s not-Rob-Ford doesn’t inspire tonnes of confidence on the transit file— on this issue it’s his ineffectualness vs her dreaming.

      Inside transit wonk circles, people know exactly how much of a non-starter it is, and ridicule it accordingly.

    • doconnor says:

      SmartTrack was supposed to be additional trains running on GO lines taking TTC fares and transfers with 21 stations and a impossible turn on to Eglinton. It was supposed to be almost done by now.

      Instead no additional trains, maybe a discount of fares one day and 6 additions GO stops one day that the city if paying for, some of which the province would have paid for without SmarkTrack.
